Shorting Smartsheet shares

There are currently 14.2 million Smartsheet shares held short by investors – that's known as Smartsheet's "short interest". This figure is 2.2% up from 13.9 million last month.

There are a few different ways that this level of interest in shorting Smartsheet shares can be evaluated.

Smartsheet's "short interest ratio" (SIR)

Smartsheet's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Smartsheet shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Smartsheet shares traded daily (recently around 2.1 million). Smartsheet's SIR currently stands at 6.83. In other words for every 100,000 Smartsheet shares traded daily on the market, roughly 6830 shares are currently held short.

However Smartsheet's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Smartsheet shares, or, against the total number of tradable Smartsheet shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Smartsheet's short interest could be expressed as 0.12% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Smartsheet shares in existence, roughly 120 shares are currently held short) or 0.1454% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Smartsheet shares, roughly 145 shares are currently held short).

A SIR below 10% would generally be considered to indicate a fairly optimistic outlook for the share price, with fewer people currently willing to bet against Smartsheet.

Smartsheet share price volatility

Over the last 12 months, Smartsheet's shares have ranged in value from as little as $30.91 up to $60.8. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".

SMAR.US volatility(beta: 1.52)Avg. volatility(beta: 1.00)LowHigh

Beta is a measure of a share's volatility in relation to the market. The market (NYSE average) beta is 1, while Smartsheet's is 1.5239. This would suggest that Smartsheet's shares are more volatile than the average for this exchange and represent, relatively-speaking, a higher risk (but potentially also market-beating returns).
